Work starts soon so I'll dissappear into my other existence but I have been having fun with the camera this past few days. Let's see what else I can take pictures of.
I had some idea of something smart to write but I forgot what it was. The summer vacation is all but over and it is time to reembrace the rest of my life. I entered the summer with grand ideas of planning every element of the year and being the best teacher I could be. Well, I had stuff to attend to and then I got a little lazy. I'll surely be better but I sure should have used the time a little better. We work to hard to succeed but find ourselves flailing through a slow tumble past happy dreams and into the mire of mediocrity. What do the great men I read of in the books do to take over their world? I need some of that so I can make things right by my eyes. Reminds me of a great quote I heard; this is the mangled version but it went like "Education should provide you the tools to live a decent life, and if the world won't let you, the tools to change it so that you can." On that, we're gonna go on a walk.

Feel free to give me your opinion on these. I'm gonna learn how to make good photos. The editing always feels cheap but some of it is pretty fun. The goal now is to make things a little more surreal and less bad then before.
I forgot...The ones that look like a ditch at night are, well, a creek that is in a ditch that goes next to our house. I like overgrown urban space. People who fear man will destroy the environment should pay more attention.

I'm about to head out the door to pick up the child but figured I would start getting some pictures of our first real vacation together. Some of these have been edited a little but the badlands are really pretty gnarly any way that you see them.
My newest silly goal is write more seriously on this page...let's see how that goes.
